Occupational Fraud and the ACFE Report to the Nations
For this week’s discussion, after reading Chapter 14 in the text and understanding the Occupational Fraud Classification Scheme, you will be using the 2018 ACFE Report to the Nations (attached and also available in the ACFE folder). Choose a fraud scheme from the report and write and post a 2 – 3 paragraph response, selecting a scheme, explaining it, and summarizing key statistics and observations from the report. Find and summarize a case study (not from the textbook) as an example of the scheme you have chosen. Choose topics that you find interesting, important, or even surprising to share with your classmates. My intent is that, with a good number of students, we will get a good variety and some excellent sampling of the contents of the Report to the Nations. After your initial post, please post at least three substantive responses to posts from your classmates, with a focus on applying these statistics and observations to the various topics we have covered this semester, or asking probing questions to dig deeper. Please post your initial response no later than Wednesday night, allowing time for responses from your classmates. The discussion will end on Sunday.
